From the Top, Down

For my whole life, I’ve been fascinated by shoes. I think it started the day I discovered my mom’s shoe bin when I was a dress-up-loving toddler. Hidden on the right-hand side of her old, cluttered closet, there was a purple plastic bin overflowing with 1990s heels of all colors, shapes, and sizes. My favorites? A pair of strappy, silver stilettoes and some black pumps with chunky, clear, plastic heels.

The ’90s were a glorious time.

Anyway, I was instantly in love. They were beautiful — every single one — and I wanted to be able to wear them all. Right then and right there. So I did. And I never stopped.

To this day, I still can’t get enough shoes. When I walk into a store, I immediately look to the shoe section, judging the quality of the company by the footwear options on display. It doesn’t matter what type, from flats to flatforms to gladiators to kitten heels to pumps to stilettoes. I love them all, and I want to give every single one a good, proper, loving home.

MY good, proper, loving home.

The point of all of this? Well, I noticed the other day while scrolling through the photo album on my phone that I take a lot of pictures where I make sure my shoes are showing. A lot. Like, a couple times a day, whatever I’m doing, I stop and take the time to snap a photo where I perfectly position everything so that the viewer can, at the very least, catch a glimpse of what I have covering my toes.

At first, I thought I was just doing this for aesthetics. You know,  proper framing, rule of thirds, visual depth. I thought I was just making the picture more striking. But now that I think about it, I feel like I actually do it because I just like looking at my shoes. I have some pretty cool pairs, and I want to show them off. So I put them in my photos. Who can blame me?

Here’s what I mean:

My feet are always there. Always. And I think it’s just because I really like shoes. Am I the only one like this???

Okay, so this post was basically pointless, but I still wanted to write it anyway. Oh well. Thanks for reading nonetheless.

Enjoy the rest of your day! Until next time ❤
